For guidelines on how to manage Provider Agents with prescribing authority, please consult this article.
Assigning providers to supervisory roles is essential in regions that mandate the inclusion of a supervising provider on prescriptions.
The "Supervisor" setting offers three distinct roles:
Supervisor: Providers with this role (typically MDs) will appear in a Supervisor drop-down menu when other providers, such as NPs or PAs, are creating a prescription. These providers don't need another Supervisor to prescribe medications.
Supervisor Required: Users with this role (e.g., Nurse Practitioners) must select a Supervising Provider from a drop-down menu of all available Supervisors within the practice when prescribing medications.
Supervisor Optional: These users have the option to choose a Supervising Provider to appear on the prescription but are not required to do so.
To activate the "Supervisor" setting in Dr. First and assign these roles, please reach out to our support team.
